Over the course of the year I get several requests for lined journals instead of my normal blank journals. This year I decided it was time to put on my thinking cap, get in the studio, and develop a line (no pun intended) of lined journals. It took a few weeks of planning, but I'm very excited to share my new product for 2014: lined journals and notebooks!
The 5x7 inch journals have hard front and back covers with decorative papers and ribbon closures, just like many of my unlined journals. The paper is a lovely text-weight paper called Mohawk Superfine and each page has dark gray printed lines on both sides of the paper.
The binding is a coptic stitch sewn with colorful waxed linen thread. Each book has 120 pages front and back, and is a great size for journaling! Right now the journals are being sold exclusively on Etsy, but keep an eye out for them this summer at craft shows.
The lined notebooks are also 5x7 inches, but have a soft cover and only one section of pages. This is a design completely new to Minimeg! Each notebook has a section of decorative paper framed on a colorful background.
The single section of pages is sewn to the cover using a simple pamphlet stitch. With only 20 pages front and back, the lined notebook is a great size to stash in a day bag for taking notes or using as a travel log on a short trip. The notebooks are also exclusive to Etsy for now.
Right now this Aqua and Red notebook is my favorite of the lined books! Which one is your favorite? Stop by my Facebook page to see photos of all my new lined journals and notebooks.
